BRISBANE TO ROCKHAMPTON BUS

From the River City to the beef capital of Australia, travel from Brisbane to Rockhampton aboard a luxurious Greyhound bus!

A cosmopolitan hub of arts, culture and dining, Brisbane is Australia’s next ‘world city’, and the metropolitan jewel in Queensland’s crown. But to see a different side to the state – and to enjoy a great steak – you should hop on a bus from Brisbane to Rockhampton.

Straddling the Tropic of Capricorn, at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef, Rockhampton is primarily known for its agriculture, and for good reason. With over 2.5 million cattle within a 250km (155mi) radius, Rockhampton’s prodigious beef production has made it the commercial centre of Central Queensland. Major attractions include the ‘Big Bull’ statues that are scattered across town, and the legendary Great Western Hotel, the place to tuck into a steak and watch professional bull riders do their thing in an actual rodeo ring on a Friday night.

But there’s much more to Rocky than meat. Rockhampton is also home to Mount Archer National Park, with its impressive range of native plants and wildflowers and stunning views of the coast; the Capricorn Caves, a series of limestone caves well worth exploring; and the Rockhampton Zoo. Filled with native animals, exotic creatures and conservation projects, the Zoo is located within the heritage-listed Rockhampton Botanic Gardens.

Rockhampton’s Dreamtime Cultural Centre – located amongst 30 acres of natural bushland – is a must-visit for those looking to learn more about Australia’s Indigenous history. Rockhampton also serves as the gateway to the coastal gems of Yeppoon and Great Keppel Island.

On the bus from Brisbane to Rockhampton, you’ll pass through popular stops like the historic towns of Gympie and Maryborough, filled with immaculately preserved buildings and artifacts from Queensland’s colonial past, and Hervey Bay, a major whale-watching destination and the gateway to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.

Depending on which of our two daily services from Brisbane to Rockhampton you take, you’ll also pass through Bundaberg, the home of the world-famous Bundaberg Rum distillery and Mon Repos turtle encounters, and Agnes Water, the most northern surf beach on Australia’s east coast.

Aboard the bus from Brisbane to Rockhampton, you’ll enjoy all the luxuries that come standard on a modern Greyhound coach, including reclining leather seats with plenty of legroom, free WiFi connectivity, in-seat USB chargers and panoramic windows.
